romney was breath-takingly dishonsest last night. mitt romney was more in control of the debate and walked all over jim lehrer and obama didn't fight back. obama had the facts and didn't use them, but this is what obama does. in 2008 when he ran against hillary clinton, people said he wasn't fighting hard enough and against john mccain and in the health care debate, he wasn't fighting hard enough. he won all the fights. >> what's interesting, our first team and others brought up the comparison of the incumbent curse. george w. bush, ronald reagan in '84, george h.w. bush in '92, the president didn't seem to be on his game. mitt romney made a surprise appearance to a cpac event in denver still courting the conservatives but say if you know people that voted for president obama, tell them to come on over to our side. that's ironic because i don't imagine he knows many conservative republicans who voted for president obama the last time or plan to this time. nevertheless, you're no fan of governor romney. did you become a fan last night as a conservative who has doubted his credibi

romney took control of the debate. he was dynamic, informed and very much on his game. and the president was not. he looked tired, he was not on top of the issues. even before the debate was over, the verdict came pouring in. romney won. and this morning, virtually every headline, every pundit left and right gives a strong edge to the governor. but the new york times just couldn't bring itself to admit their guy had a bad day. they hedged. obama and romney spar over fixing the economy, they said. well, dare i call this a romney rally? i will tell you that stocks will open up today. the day after the romney win.
